PARIS — The Grand Palais, the elegant glass-domed exhibition hall here that is home to Chanel fashion shows, art exhibitions and swanky antique fairs, took on a different character last weekend as surfwear giant Quiksilver celebrated its 40th anniversary, complete with what was billed as the biggest vert ramp in Europe.
Over two days, thousands of skate and extreme-sport enthusiasts wheeled their way to the event to catch a glimpse of Tony Hawk and Kelly Slater, along with a fashion show and a live art performance by graffiti artist-nightclub impresario André Saraiva.
